History

The Annascaul team was set up in the early 1920s and it has had much success over the years; the most recent coming between 1981 and 1993 when the club won three County Intermediate Football Championship, one County League Division 1, four West Kerry Senior Football Championship, and one County Club Championship. The club played in one County Championship final, one County Intermediate Football Championship, and two West Kerry Senior Football Championship finals.

Since 2000, the club has won the County Junior Championship, County Intermediate Football Championship, Munster Intermediate Club Football Championship, County League Division 2, a West Kerry Senior Football Championship and two West Kerry Leagues. They have also played in two other County Intermediate Football Championship Finals, one West Kerry Senior Football Championship Final, two West Kerry League Finals, two West Kerry Minor Championship Finals, and one Munster Junior Club Football Championship Final.

In 1993, the club played in the Kerry Senior Football Championship for the first time and made it to the final, where shorn of many of their star players due to injury, lost out to Laune Rangers. There were some notable wins along the way, including a first round win over then holders Mid Kerry and over locals West Kerry in the semi-final.

The club was the first in the county to have a weekly lottery.

The club's home ground is named after Paddy Kennedy who played for Kerry in the 1930s and 1940s. Regarded by many as one of the all-time greats of Kerry football, he was captain of the 1946 All-Ireland winning team. The pitch was opened in 1984; the first game played there was between Kerry and Dublin. Since then, there have been many West Kerry League championship games and finals played there by all age groups as well as many County League championships. In 2003, the Munster Ladies Minor Football Championship final between Kerry and Cork was played there. In 2008, a round of the Ladies National League was played between Kerry and Mayo

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The only history is a mere question of one’s struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander, to do.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    A man will not need to study history to find out what is best for his own culture.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
